"Peachy Keen" --- SOLD



I finally got my FAQ together - 2 actually: 1 for painting stuff, and one specifically for buyers. They are pages on my regular website, but accessible from here too. Please let me know if you have any other questions you would like me to address there, thanks.

Peaches are a tough subject but I was particularly happy with how this one turned out. I really like the composition. It's not too posed, if you know what I mean, and I think this is really tough to capture. I struggle with it every day. And I really like the saturated orange/peach against the gray/blue ground.

Oh how I now want peach pie!!! This is so wonderful- the fuzzy feel with sharp brushstrokes- such an anomaly.

And thanks so much for the FAQ's and all the visuals that go with it.

Do you have any idea how many people are moved by what you do and how you do it!
Thanks so much.
Every day is another surprise in my email box.

Looking at this painting I thought, 'oh this one is especially successful!' and then thought about why, and then proceeded to read your post and everything you wrote was exactly what I had been thinking! Love the (unusual?) saturated oranges with the soft blue grey!
And the FAQ are a great addition too.
